Teaching Effective Methodologies to Design a Data Warehouse
An important component for the students in the advanced database class at the University of North Florida involves the development of a data warehouse that is efficiently designed and effectively optimized for data retrieval and statistical analysis for Decision Support Systems (DSS) and Executive Information Systems (EIS). This paper describes the methods utilized to help students understand the considerations in the design process of a data warehouse. The methodologies involve the commonly used star schema and the snowflake schema as well as other alternative techniques to teach students about the essential factors to consider when designing a data warehouse.
